The accident happened around 2:00 am on Interstate 24, near mile marker 165. A semi truck traveling eastbound crossed over into the westbound lanes, striking another semi truck head on. One of the trucks immediately burst into flames, and struck two other vehicles including an SUV.
The two truck drivers were both reportedly killed in the accident. As authorities investigated, they discovered the responsible semi truck was hauling a trailer that was reportedly stolen from Knight Transportation over a week ago. The identities of those killed and injured have not been released as of yet, but the investigation is ongoing at this time. The accident remains under open investigation to determine cause and liability.
